He's showing a similar prudence in deferring to a court as to whether the administration's claim of immunity is valid or not.
I'm not saying that his position is noble. If he thinks the administration has crossed a serious line, it would be a noble act to testify regardless of the administration's order not to, as several people have. Bolton is instead covering his ass.
